US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 989 F.2d 492 (4th Cir. 1993) Submitted: December 8, 1992Decided: March 16, 1993

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Alexandria. T. S. Ellis, III, District Judge. (CA-91-406-AM)

Leonard J. Hawkins, Appellant Pro Se.

Richard Bain Smith, Assistant Attorney General, Richmond, Virginia, for Appellee.

E.D. Va.


Before WILKINSON, HAMILTON, and LUTTIG, Circuit Judges.



Leonard J. Hawkins seeks to appeal the district court's order refusing habeas corpus relief pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (1988). Our review of the record and the district court's opinion discloses that this appeal is without merit. Accordingly, we deny a certificate of probable cause to appeal and dismiss the appeal on the reasoning of the district court. Hawkins v. Murray, No. CA-91-406-AM (E.D. Va. July 23, 1992). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
